    By Vangie Beal :  June 14, 2002

    (Press Release) ATI has renewed its commitment to providing high-quality, reliable graphics solutions by introducing CATALYST, a software suite that includes unified driver and software applications to enable its RADEON family of graphics products. The CATALYST suite consists of four software elements: ATI's unified driver for RADEON products; HYDRAVISION, ATI's proprietary desktop management software; ATI's popular MULTIMEDIA CENTER software and ATI's new REMOTE WONDER software. The first release of CATALYST introduces:

    • SMARTGART - ATI's proprietary diagnostic tool, which will determine and configure optimal system settings for the most stable performance. This will make the industry's most stable 3D acceleration drivers and software even more reliable;
    • A newly designed control panel to help users easily manage their settings, helping them finding the right balance between performance and image-quality;
    • Software to drive HDTV's through ATI's new HDTV Component Video Adapter (available from ATI.com) to achieve previously unattainable image quality;
    • A new version of ATI's MULTIMEDIA CENTER software which can be used for SVCD compliant capture;
    • Software for ATI's REMOTE WONDER, including new pre-defined plug-ins, enabling users to map the keys on their REMOTE WONDER to drive their favorite applications from across the room - or another room altogether.

    Performance will be a key focus of every CATALYST release. ATI is committed to frequent updates, getting performance enhancements into the hands of users quickly instead of waiting for annual, or semi-annual performance boosts as is sometimes common in the graphics industry. All drivers in CATALYST will be WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) certified by Microsoft. ATI's customer service team supports the CATALYST suite. This will bring additional value to customers choosing products built by ATI and its graphics board partners. Customers are encouraged to use the online feedback process via ATI.com to send their suggestions for new CATALYST features and enhancements directly to ATI.
